Addiction Happens. What next?

Tuesday, January 23, 2018 | By Chris Clancy

Addiction can come as a Surprise

Addiction often begins as a solution to problem. Using alcohol or drugs can solve an emotional problem in the moment, numb reminders of a traumatic past, or temporarily lessen anxiety. People begin using because it feels good. Drugs and alcohol provide a level of freedom that many have never experienced before because of the struggles of co-occurring issues like anxiety, depression, or other mental health complications. Addiction treatment is one of the best options for recovering from addiction.

However, addiction begins to cause more and more problems over time. On a long enough timeline, alcohol and drug abuse will stop solving an emotional problem and start producing significant consequences in an individual’s life. Eventually, arrests, hospitalizations, broken relationships, and lost jobs begin to dominate an addict’s life.

What to do if you can’t stop

It can come as a shock that you can’t stop. It can be overwhelming, confusing, frustrating. It can lead to continued use, severe depression, or even suicidal thoughts. You may not know what to do. That’s why we are here. Our expert Admissions Coordinators can guide you step-by-step through the process. We are here to find out what exactly the details of your struggle are and help you by presenting several options on how you can move towards sobriety.

We have a team of addiction professionals at your disposal to find out which treatment center is the best fit for you, whether that is at one of our JourneyPure facilities or one of our trusted partners. As Nate Hartman, Director of Admissions Operations at JourneyPure, says, “If we are doing our job correctly, we will be helping more people get into other treatment centers than our own.”

If it turns out we don’t work with your insurance, we will find a facility that does. If you have medical complications that require a special level of care, we have clinical relationships with treatment centers that can provide what you need. If you must remain local due to legal or other reasons, we know the facilities that operate ethically and we will get you connected to ensure you get the help you need, regardless of complicating circumstances.


“Our philosophy is to help every caller”

You may have called several treatment centers with no luck. We will work diligently with you to get you into a JourneyPure facility or connect you with a treatment center that we know, trust, and work with regularly. Part of our strategy involves touring and collaborating with other facilities. We find centers that employ the same philosophy of helping every caller. It is important to us that, if we make a recommendation, we know that you are going to admit to a quality provider.

Not All Addiction Treatment Centers are the Same

There are facilities out there that operate from a different perspective than JourneyPure. You may have read about some of the flaws of the treatment industry on a blog or in the newspaper. And not all treatment centers will be right for you. But it is our mission to provide the best quality treatment at the most affordable rate for all who suffer the perils of addiction.

JourneyPure has Residential and Outpatient facilities all across the Southeast. We provide comprehensive care that includes intimate one-on-one therapy sessions, intensive group therapy, adventure and equine therapy, trauma modalities, and the expertise to work with and treat any individual who struggles with a dual diagnosis issue.
